In Australia we may be out of the seasonal rhythm with the rest of the world but it shouldn’t stop us from picking up a quality jacket in preparation for our next cold snap, especially given the crazy weather patterns of late.
Private White V.C. are outfitters based in Manchester, UK with a long history beginning in 1853, of creating beautifully crafted, high quality products, particularly when it comes to their jackets. Those jackets were commissioned for use in both World Wars, and now a different war with Covid-19 by supplying garments and masks for the Department of Health & Social Care.
What you’re buying with Private White is a hell of a lot of heritage and something which can be worn for years tp come. Here are a few of the jackets in their Autumn Winter 2020 collection.
The Twin Track
The Twin Track biker jacket uses a 6 oz waxed cotton developed with Halley Stevensons in Dundee, fully lined in 100% wool flannel from Huddersfield, Marling & Evans, military-grade gunmetal hardware from RIRI of Switzerland, and hell of a lot of adjustability.
